Bi-Level / Ventilators
BiPAP treatment, otherwise known as Bi-level or VPAP is a mechanical, medical ventilator that helps you breathe when you are unable to breathe on your own. BiPap provides non-invasive mechanical, medical ventilation that assists with breathing, by providing air pressure through a mask placed over your nose and mouth. It is important to consult a Respiratory/Sleep Physician for appropriate advice on diagnosis and treatment.
For a normal healthy person, the lungs should expand when breathing in. This motion happens as a result of the diaphragm, your main breathing muscle in your chest, compresses. This causes the pressure to drop inside the lungs’ tubes and sacs, and sucks oxygenated air into the lungs.
For patients with difficulty breathing, a BiPAP machine can help push air into the lungs, and open the lungs with air pressure. BiPAP provides positive air pressure when you breathe in and when you breathe out. However, the pressure is higher when breathing in.
BiPAP or medical ventilation is typically prescribed for a wide range of conditions including those related to respiratory, sleep, heart, or brain.
It is recommended that when buying a BiPAP machine for home use, to consult a medical professional. That way, you can be assured of getting the BiPAP machine that best suits your needs.
